Exactly. I can't understand why Smith is so maligned by Rams fans.

It's a valid point that he lost his LT position pretty quickly but he also had some decent performance for a year or two as a RT. I'll take any good production over none...

He clearly turned out as a sub par pick. But worst ever? I'm not seeing it.

because I do think his desire could be question after his injuries. But I don't know about worst, to me, gotta be Lawrence Phillips, bu Smith is right there with Greg Robinson.

Part of it was both Smith and G-Rob were the "supreme physical specimens" and supposed both had mean streak. They were supposed to be the left tackle for a decade. With Smith we didn't see the knee injury than cemented in our minds he was hurt. Maybe kind of a concussion dismissal bias by all of us Rams fans

I dunno, just spitballing here.

I do recall his desire was questioned.

But in fairness to him, GRob has also had his desire and love of football questioned which is even worse. At least in Smith's case, a guy lost his desire after being hurt several times. IOW, there is some logical reason there.

There is a lot of similarity between Smith and GRob for all of the reasons you list. Ultimately, I don't have too much of a problem with Smith being there with GRob. I just can't grasp his being ranked worse.
